PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I always see The Netherlands - my home country - as a small, easily graspable version of other, larger and more important western countries and even the west as a whole. In light of this, Tweakers.net's Arnoud Wokke points to a very interesting report about the Dutch telecommunications market. This reports notes a trend that, if present in the rest of the world, could have serious effects for phone makers.

It's interesting to hear that Dutch carriers subsidize phones, as I had understood that most of Europe's carriers did not.

Many (most?) European (!=EU) carriers did; but there's a shift away.

Anyway, worldwide, strong majority of the 5+ billion mobile subscribers does own their phones, and uses prepaid.
